Can I bulk up using 5 or less reps?
Don't know shit about bulking or just trying to get bigger. Never tried it. I don't eat enough and it's just never crossed my mind until yesterday.
I train with the goal to maximize strength, but I am aware that you need to get bigger to keep getting stronger. I just don't know how.
I've decided that when I exaust my strength gains at 165+ lbs that I'll bulk up to keep making progress, so I won't be doing this for a while, but I'd like to know how to do it in advance.
My question here is: Is it possible or even a good option to bulk while training in the 3-5 rep range? Can doing things like slowing down rep speed and shortening rest periods make the 3-5 range good for size?
The reason I ask this is because I enjoy training in the 3-5s and I Fear that I wouldn't see desirable strength gains training in the 8-12 range.
Just a question.
potential technique for adding size quickly
try some HIT techniques, going to failure first on a few sets then doing a few more tradidtional volume sets. the biggest obstacle for many tryin to grow is the concept of resting and not overtraining. many pros will even have to take a step back and up the intensity in shorter durations and then know when to rest.
